The students in 3rd grade have been learning all about directions and how to use a Compass Rose in Social Studies. We learned that there are not only the cardinal directions of N, E, S, W, but also intermediate directions as well; NE, SE, NW, NE. As a review activity, 8 students were handed a direction with a specific direction and 2 students were handed the labels of “intermediate” and “cardinal” directions. Then, it was left to the students to create a “class compass!” They did a great job!
